Chef PDX - Chef PDX Meetup #003 - Ask the Pros
New Relic

We're skipping January this time due to travel schedules not aligning, but will be back February 22nd with an awesome meetup! 

Ever wish you had a Chef sitting next to you so you can ask that burning question? 

Perhaps you've been banging your head against a wall on something technical and wish a Chef was sitting next to you to help?

Have you wished you had a Chef's ear to express how much you love, or maybe don't love, using Chef?

Maybe you're new to Chef and config management and want to bounce some questions or ideas off of people who do this stuff for a living?

Well, now you can! This time we're bringing in a panel of Chefs for Q&A / AMA (Ask Me Anything) and then we'll break out and help you work through any issues you may be experiencing with Chef products, recipes, pipelines, and even DevOps transformation. So start thinking about questions you'd like answered or things you'd like to discuss or work on and bring it on! We're here to help you and make you successful!

This is a great opportunity to meet some Chefs from different areas within Chef and get answers and help! Join us!

6:30pm-7pm "Reducing Cost & Risk via Automation with Terraform on AWS" presented by Chris Dunlap- Sr. Solution Engineer @ HashiCorp

Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. This talk will focus on how customers can leverage Terraform to eliminate unnecessary cloud spend by 30-40% and reduce risk by baking guardrails and best practices into their automation.

7pm-7:30pm "Intelligent decisions about cloud usage with Cloudability’s FinOps platform" presented by Patrick Zumar- Senior SE @ Cloudability

A new operating model for the cloud, called FinOps, is emerging that enables a shift — a combination of systems, best practices and culture — to increase an organization’s ability to understand cloud costs and make tradeoffs. In the same way that DevOps revolutionized development by breaking down silos and increasing agility, FinOps increases the business value of cloud by bringing together technology, business and finance professionals with a new set of processes.

FinOps has several fundamental building blocks we’ve seen high performing organizations put in place to gain competitive advantage. Patrick Zumar will share what we’ve learned from guiding hundreds of large and small cloud adopters on their journey to adopt FinOps.

7:30pm-8pm Networking
